Stamford Police Assist Feds with Construction Site Inspections

Four ongoing construction sites were inspected by a variety of government agencies after reports were allegedly received on a variety of worker violations.

The Stamford Police Department assisted state and federal officials Wednesday as they conducted inspections of four South End ongoing contruction sites on reports of companies there using undocumented labor.

According to authorities, approximately 20 Stamford police officers assisted representatives from the Connecticut and U.S. Departments of Labor and representatives from Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as they conducted interviews and inspections at the following sites:

  • 580 South Pacific Street
  • 760 South Pacific Street
  • 42 Clinton Avenue
  • 31 Pulaski Street

Police said inspections were conducted after reports were received of undocumented workers, workers being paid under the table and workers not being paid, which would mean proper taxes and insurance was not being withheld or paid. 

Police said they were present with the representatives and officials strictly in a peacekeeping capacity. As the investigation continues, paperwork and records must be filed with the departments and a report will be made available in "a couple of weeks," police said.

Though they try, nothing will come of this. So sad for the honest worker conducting proper and legal business...
